Price range, maybe, but not part number: K47fet capsule = 053223.

Unlike the K49fet capsule, I have not seen a K47fet capsule without sputtering on the rear. But corners are cut every day everywhere....

Hi Klaus, this could explain the model K49fet (#514753): Sennheiser told me about 2 years ago that it was in the same price range as the K47fet.

Lately sellers on eBay, Reverb, and other sites, sell "Neumann K47" that are actually cardioid-only TLM49 capsules with only one usable side (the rear diaphragm serves just as mechanical damping, but is not sputtered with conductive gold).

Sellers can offer these "K47"- named capsules for considerably less than a genuine K47 and still make a nice profit. What is particularly frustrating: when confronted, sellers will (rightfully?) refer to Neumann's web site, where the capsule is indeed claimed to be the "Same capsule design as the legendary U 47 and M 49".

Again: these capsules can NOT be used in multi-pattern mics like U47, U48, and M149. When in doubt, get a picture of both sides! (Picture of TLM49 capsule's rear side attached.)

Final update. I purchased the word clock daughter board for the RME card. We installed the word clock board in the computer and are now clocking the Benchmark off the RME. Seems to be stable and works well. FWIW

You will not find a serial number on this C24 MKI, because its housing tube was changed out, many years after it was issued. And, unlike most C12, there was no additional serial number embossed on this model's connector barrel.

From the photos it looks like it's been extensively serviced by James Gangwer in the East Bay. I would therefore strongly advise to contact him: some C24 refurbished with replacement housings (which were likely supplied by AKG, or the mic was serviced by AKG) may also miss the original CK12 capsules*, with Teflon/Nylon CK12 as replacement, so he may have more information.

*James probably would not have done that- he is meticulous about restorations and respects authenticity in vintage mics- but it may have been done at some time prior.

I'm trying to locate the serial number on a C24. It is not stamped on the shell as I see in many photos, and I can't seem to find it elsewhere with the naked eye. Can anyone tell me where I should be looking? Photos of the mic in question are here:

Doing some cassette transfers. My chain is Tascam 122 MKII cassette deck into a Benchmark ADC-1 A to D converter then into a Z-Systems 8 by 8 digital router and into my RME audio card on my Windows 7 Pro computer. I am using WL 9.35.5 for my DAW. I am clocking off the Benchmark ADC-1. Everything has been going smoothly until yesterday when a problem occurred. The client wants all the material at 96KHz 24 bits. Yesterday the clock on Wavelab started counting very slowly and even though the RME card app said we were at 96 kHz we recorded the material at half the speed so when played back it was twice as fast, Turned off the computer and turned it back on. No change. Checked all my settings. Turned off the Benchmark, no change. Turned off the Z-System router and no change. Waited about a minute and everything was back to normal. I am stumped. Any thoughts or suggestions? Some help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hello everyone!
This is Alberto from Fuseroom Berlin. Some weeks ago I started my own podcast that is going to cover topics of studio and music business, recording/mixing/mastering and audio production in general.

I thought it might be of interest to some of you, even for spending some time together, virtually, every week-end. If nothing, it's going to be my weekend therapy session!

I usually follow the format of:
- What's been going on in the week at Fuseroom
- Question of the week
- 2 things I've learnt this week

I am sure things can develop with maybe interviews, Q&A, gear talk, whatever else. Feel free to drop your input here, I am all ears.

The podcast is completely independent and unaffiliated with any physical or abstract entity other than my own and Fuseroom's (as is everything the studio does, for better or worse..)

I am always doing the podcast on-the-go or anywhere I might be in a weekend (could be at the studio, could be somewhere else) so my main focus is to be portable, easy to make and repeatable. For this reason I go straight from my iPhone mic to a standard production preset I've scripted. Apologies in advance if audio quality was not kept in the highest of my regards.

Thanks for the opportunity and nice to meet you, everyone!
